Description Jesse Keating 2008-02-22 16:08:18 UTC
This is an automatically filed bug for a failed rebuild attempt for GCC 4.3.


Please verify why this build failed and fix it.
Exit code was 1, check the build.log for the failed buildArch task.

Comment 1 Alex Lancaster 2008-02-28 10:50:06 UTC
Confirming that this is indeed problem introduced with GCC 4.3 itself and not a
buildroot issue.  The error is:

"error: explicit template specialization cannot have a storage class"

According to http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-4.3/porting_to.html this is easy to fix (see
the page), but it needs a patch and somebody to get it added upstream.

This needs to be done ASAP as ginac not building also blocks octave-forge and
perhaps other packages, and a freeze is coming up next week.

Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2008-03-02 11:45:27 UTC
Successfully rebuilt:


* Sun Mar  2 2008 Alex Lancaster <alexlan> - 1.4.1-4
- Patch for building with GCC 4.3 (this has been applied upstream and so
  can be dropped in the next release of ginac).

Will rebuild octave-forge against this new ginac once repo updates.
